Last night Anthony Dicomo of MLB.com revealed that RA Dickey will take to the mound on March 7th when the Mets take on Jose Reyes and the Marlins. Dickey will start the first game of the spring for the Mets, setting up a likely rotation of Santana, Dickey, Niese, Pelfrey and Gee.
I suppose there really isn't much news here. That rotation isn't out of line in any way, however I wouldn't have been shocked if the Mets have "promoted" Niese to the second spot in the rotation. Dickey however is wise beyond his years from an experience standpoint, and this set up should also do Niese a favor or two when it comes to game day match-ups.
